Magoo and I had a little fun in the kitchen this afternoon since her lunch request was “noodles I have never had.” So, we got creative. Miss M picked out the noodles (a half-package of wide egg noodles that we had leftover) and I selected our shredded smoked Gouda cheese that we had leftover from our Smoked Gouda and Granny Smith Apple grilled cheese. As usual, M’s choice for the sauce was pesto. The end result was the wonderfully smokey, almost bacon-y (we’re going to pretend that’s a word) Pesto & Gouda Cheesy Pasta. I loooooove when lunch is easy to make, doesn’t require a lot of ingredients (hey, that saves on the grocery bill!) and tastes delish! Give it a try and comment below to let us know what you think.
